Rhubarb & Pineapple Pie   2 comments

Rarely do I take the time to bake pies.  On a whim, I bought some rhubarb while at the market.

I am short a cup of the necessary ingredient. I toss in a cup of pineapple to compensate for the lack of rhubarb. I hope the pineapple will help sweeten the pie.



I will be making this recipe again. Enjoy your day!



On The Grow: Garden 2012   Leave a comment

The beginning of new life bursting through the soil seeking the sun.

 The sweet potatoes are left over from a friend’s harvest last year.

 The green bean seedlings are emerging to a bright new world. The next pic looks like a shout of joy.

   My sweet cat is ever ready to help defend the garden.


Enjoy your day!

Fleeting Glimpse Of Beauty: The Luna Moth   6 comments

Yesterday I found myself dashing for my camera.

I have no idea of the proper name of this amazing creature. Reminds me of a stingray oddly enough.

So this morning all that was left for my camera were these and a bunch of caterpillars a little too late for the show.

        The circle of life is too short to stand still. Enjoy your day!

Rain Wonder   Leave a comment

Rain makes everything spring better from the tiny seeds sprouting to the critters crawling. 


The garden is taking seed to root earlier than expected.             The baby spinach will soon be in a salad bowl.


The tomatoes are already blossoming.      

    The cherry tree provides ample food for the small flying guys.




The garden is on the grow! Jr is helping me decide where to plant the other veggies.



The blue hued caterpillars are a neat discovery!  Enjoy your day!





Inch Worm To Holy Crappie   Leave a comment

From the tiny wonders of nature to a huge catch in local waters, today provided a bounty of photo ops.

The fella above was caught on the first cast of the afternoon before the rain.

The inch worm was not the bait that hooked this big guy. Go out and enjoy your day!

Spring Flare   Leave a comment

Spring has sprung out of winter’s loose grip.

I wish I could recall the name of the flower below. The pattern and delicate coloring make me smile.


The purple iris appears translucent in the morning sunlight despite the depth of color.




    Mr. Green Guy poses a moment for my camera. Enjoy your day!

     The following pics are some of my favorite spring flowers planted throughout our yard.            




Luckily my photos caught a few insects and a reptile or two as well.          








Happy St. Patrick’s Day 2012   Leave a comment

Thank you to Susan and Paul for a delightful St. Patrick’s Day celebration!  

Wonderful friends mixed with tasty food and soulful music equals a great party.       

And a grand time was had by all!

Enjoy your day!

The Garden   4 comments

The garden will soon be level with rich soil.

 Lasagna layering in the garden is a great way to create productive vegetable growth as the compost continues to decompose.

    We decide one more truck load of top soil will suffice with  Jungle Growth dirt purchased at Lowes.

Hearty grows wishes to our potatoes, red cabbage, brussels sprout, red and sweet carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, collard greens, rutagaba plants, butter crunch lettuce, red and sweet onions and the asparagus bed!

Otis is a big help!                                             

 The garden is happy. Enjoy your day!
